Ok, Lakers are on pace for about 15-26 for the first half of the year.

That means to make the playoffs based upon last years 47 win mark, they'll need to go 32-9 the second half of the season.

Just being a responsible friend and calling you an Uber before you try to drive home after drinking the playoff koolaid.

That initial poll is starting to look like Napolean Dynamites Uncle Rico's estimation of how far he can throw a football.

Correction on my previous post, MJ was friends with Craig Hodges AND Charles Oakley obviously.
John Paxson to an extent too (out of pure respect for Paxson's work ethic and smarts), but I think he only socialized with Hodges and Oakley.

Well it looks like Lebron is trying to get another coach fired:

I'm indifferent to Luke Walton still...always thought he enjoyed a bit of golden-child status due to his father.

Pat Riley would be a good coach for the Lakers.
And Miami is going nowhere....

Everybody knows that Lebron coming to LA means that there will be changes. Coaches, players...you name it.

Magic is going to be busy trying to unload the likes of Ball and others that aren't developing to Lebron's satisfaction.

Just like Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters etc. were top picks and only KI survived the process.

The Lakers sure do have a lot thrillers.
I guess when your defense is this bad, it makes it really hard to win comfortably.
Even when the offense is clicking, the defense will most likely concede just as much.

Good defense takes committed veterans and team cohesion.

Lakers are doing better for now, like I've said before....I like Lebron and Magic, just calling out the bandwagon expecting an easy and quick return to greatness.

Played good D in the Sac game. But that's about it.

Beat Atlanta by 1 point!
Losing that would have been a real setback, especially at home.
